    I frequently dive into the Facebook pigpen when someone posts something provocative and loaded with false premises. Of course it doesn't do much good, except maybe there are bystanders on the thread that realize their friends are victims of the propaganda George Orwell predicted in 1936.

    Yes, it is a question we all must answer at some point in life: To Be or Not to Be.
    But what it usually comes down to, how does a decision not to be, especially collectively, effect their neighbors and the rest of the world...if they can't contain their preferred perversions then we have to do something about that.

    Also...a new take on an old adage: You can give one knowledge, but you can't make them think.
